“Whenever you are faced with a choice between liberty and security, choose liberty or you will end up with neither.” B. Franklin
At times the more I ruminate the farther I move from a decision. And whilst liberty is a good measure to strive for, it’s not a guaranteed best case scenario. Here I think of Tolstoy’s Anna, who chose liberty, yet was so fixated on the choice that she drove herself mad. I prefer: whenever you are faced with a choice between liberty and security, choose liberty and forget about it at the ocean.
